Malin Head was very much like Horn Head in the sense that there is a lot of rough water and rugged scenery. The cliffs though weren’t as high as the ones in Horn Head and I would think that the ones in Horn Head were more spectacular. However, this isn’t to take anything away from Malin Head. There were magnificent rocks on the shore which make for a rather otherworldly scene. It is probably because of these rocks that there have been a lot of shipwrecks in the area. As it turns out, the rocks in Malin are one of Ireland’s oldest, thus having significant geological value.
There are numerous hillwalking opportunities at Malin Head and we didn’t completely tackle one of them. We decided that it was getting late and that we needed to get back as it was not easy driving in the sometimes dark roads of Ireland. There also seem to be some interesting places here in the area as there are also sand dunes which are considered Europe’s largest. Unfortunately, we didn’t have time to visit them though I really wanted to see it. That would probably mean we would be getting sand in the car. Not easy to clean. There are probably some bed and breakfast places here to be able to complete explore the place. I would probably come back here to see the other places which we missed.
